House of the Devil Review
Synopsis:During a night of 1983 with full lunar eclipse, Samantha Hughes takes a babysitting job surrounded by mysterious circumstances before she finds out her client's terrifying secret.
I’m surprised by all the gushing reviews for this movie. I am watching it right now, having rented it from IO for a whopping $6.45. Wooden acting, stiff dialogue, clear absences of a competent editor, and meaningless scenes create a boring movie. It seems that the creators of this movie fancy themselves as independent film types. Nothing could be further from the truth. I already mentioned that the script was stiffly written. "Ah, I see you’ve met. Excellent." The lack of editing creates a slow pace that drags on and on. The star, who resembles Karen Allen, is lovely to watch but not exactly inspired, or a good actress.
Do yourself a favor- wait for it on HBO, but don’t pay to see this movie.
